    SONAR, 9th Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art of Barcelona
    JUNE 13.14.15. 2002

    SONAR 2002 PROGRAMME PREVIEW

    For the ninth consecutive year, SÓNAR is once again an essential venue for
    those wishing to discover the latest trends in electronic music. A meeting
    point, highly receptive to the pulse of the avant-garde, that offers to a
    varied public the formats of a sound laboratory, a leisure area, a museum, a
    conference and professional convention hall. Music, audiovisual arts,
    digital creation and thought converge in this absolutely essential event.

    As in previous editions, SÓNAR once again anticipates and offers a detailed
    scan of avant-garde creation of our times and opens the way to proposals
    that have a specific and seminal impact on electronic culture. The programme
    is open, rich in nuances and for another consecutive year embraces different
    artistic manifestations (music, film and electronic art), patent testimony
    to the ever increasing promiscuity amongst disciplines.

    Sound manipulation and rhythm research, the new forms of landscaping and a
    spirit for experimentation are the defining characteristics of a new
    generation of artists whom SÓNAR BY DAY has opted for. The repertoire of
    artists -Cex, Dntel, Lali Puna, Donna Regina, Static, Isan, Wobbly, Balago-
    come from fields such as indie, pop, experimentation or contemporary music,
    and coincide in their use of digital tools with which they produce pieces
    beyond classification by means of microscopic sounds, glitches and abstract,
    highly emotive melodies.

    Within the music programme of SÓNAR2002, the showcases and SONARLAB standout
    once again as presentation formats for the work of record labels and
    artistic collectives. In this editions SÓNAR will offer an overview of the
    productions and latest releases of renowned international labels -Morr
    Music, City Centre Offices, Staalplaat, Karaoke Kalk- with special emphasis
    on the Californian electronic scene represented by Musork, Tigerbeat6 and
    Plug Research. Special mention must be given to the participation of record
    labels from countries that normally have limited resources for promoting
    their national production such as Escuadrón Sudaca (Venezuela).

    Convinced that leisure and experimentation are not necessarily antagonistic,
    SÓNAR BY NIGHT once again opts for a programme full of stylistic nuances
    that go beyond the usual club context. Its three stages -SONARCLUB,
    SONARPARK Y SONARPUB- will offer very adventurous proposals such as Andy
    Votel or Sirconical as well as great names of dance music such as Richie
    Hawtin, Carl Cox or Óscar Mulero. Other highlights are the appearance of the
    kings of techno-pop Pet Shop Boys, the live soundtrack from the film by
    Jean Painlevé "The Sounds of Science" which will be interpreted by Yo La
    Tengo, and the dj set performed by the British Alison Goldfrapp.

    Although SÓNAR dedicates most of its programme to concerts and Dj's, the
    rest of its activities are directly linked to musical creation either
    through their implicit subject matter or because various artistic
    disciplines coexist in the same support. All the activities combined in
    their diversity, and especially SonarMatica, the multimedia area, are
    fundamental ingredients that endow the festival with character, variety and
    a differentiated personality.

    After having previously presented the creative realities of Barcelona,
    Berlin and London, SONARMÁTICA2002 now turns its eye to Helsinki. A guided
    tour through the most breakaway and original activities that take place in
    the Scandinavian capital, with a special emphasis on the area of digital
    creation and new technologies. In this section, some of the highlights are
    the installations of Tommi Grönlund and Petteri Nisunen as well as the works
    of the Katastro.fi collective, one of the most influential and innovative
    multimedia art platforms on the European scene.
